    The Nexus 6 developed by Motorola adopts its design from the 2014 Moto X. The device is surrounded by an aluminum frame, with the front made entirely of glass and the rear featuring slightly curved polycarbonate. It's a well thought-out design and is easier to hold than might be expected for a 6-inch phablet.

    The Galaxy S6 features an all-glass front and back plates sealed with Aluminium edges. The Design is somewhat based on the Galaxy Note 4 design. Samsung has been very cautious on the design front and knew what would lure more customers.

    The Nexus 6 offers a 6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 inch display with QHD (2560x1440 pixels) resolution and 493 ppi. The colours on the devive look real and impressive but fail to pack the punch expected on a high end device.

    The Galaxy S6 on the other hand offers a display of 5.65 x 2.78 x 0.27 inches which has a resolution of 1440x2560pixels and a pixel density of 577ppi. The S6 is certainly the brighter performer with a bright, pin-sharp, impossibly detailed display.

    The Nexus 6 was the first device to come with an Android Lollipop OS. That's precisely because it is a Google device, the Nexus 6 runs the stock version of the software. This is the pure Android experience.

    The Galaxy S6 features Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Samsung's own TouchWiz interface placed on top. Samsung claimed that the new OS would not come with the avalanche of apps usually pre-installed on Galaxy S-branded devices, but it still features a bunch.
